Police: Letter Claims PNHS Baseball Coach Knew Players Were Drinking at Party
Plymouth Police and the Plymouth school district are investigating allegations that the Plymouth North High School baseball coach attended a party where underage drinking was present.
Plymouth Police and the Plymouth school district are investigating allegations that Plymouth North Baseball Coach Dwayne Follette, and several players' parents attended a party where players were drinking shots and engaging in drinking games, according to a report by FOX 25.
The allegations stem from a letter received by the school principal alleging the complaint. School officials notified police.
Police Chief Michael E. Botieri confirms to FOX 25 that an investigation is underway about allegations that a parent threw a party for the team following the Division II State Baseball Championships.
Botieri says people have made claims that alcohol was present at the party and that the parents and coach Dwayne Follette, who was allegedly in attendance, were aware of its presence. However, Botieri says investigators are having a difficult time getting witnesses to come forward and make these allegations on the record.
No charges have been filed during the probe. The investigation is expected to be completed by next week.
